Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

1. “Let not your hearts be troubled or cast down;
You trust in God, trust in the Son also.
My Father’s house is filled with many rooms;
If it weren’t so, I would have let you know.

2. “I go away to make a place for you;
And if I go, I will for you return.
I’ll take you there so you can be with Me;
You know the way—just follow Me and learn.

3. “I am the only way, the truth, the life;
None comes to God unless he comes through Me.
If you know Me, you’ll know My Father, too;
I am in Him, and He abides in Me.

4. “These words I speak, they are not just My own;
God is the one who does His work through Me.
Believe that I am in My Father God,
Or just believe the miracles you see.

5. “If you have faith, you’ll do what I have done;
I tell the truth, e’en greater things you’ll do.
You’ll do these things because I go to God;
Thus it is good I go away from you.

6. I will do anything you ask of Me,
So that the Son to God may glory bring.
Ask in My name, ask anything you please;
You need but ask, and I will do each thing.
